SPN Podcast - Michael Egan on the history of Sustainability

From the summer of 2013, host Matthew Sweet is joined by Dr. Michael Egan of McMaster University’s Department of History to discuss the development and evolution of the concept of sustainability.  We discuss how sustainability came to be the popular and frequently used term that it is today, the shift from environmentalism to sustainability, comparing sustainability to the community resilience movement, and Michael tells us how he tries to provide his students with a bit of hope mixed in with respectful fear of what is to come and the challenges that lie ahead.  A fantastic interview with Dr. Egan which you don’t want to miss!
